Foreword 

^UT of the folds of our college life, a 
thread of every color has been drawn. 
One is heavy with gold; another slender 
and blue; another, a symphony of winged 
shades that flicker under the brightening 
light. All these have been spun together to 
make one harmonious pattern. If but a 
single thread is lacking, the image is de- 
stroyed; if but a single thread lies broken, 
the structure is shattered. All the threads 
have been gathered. All are brilliant and 
strong. And out of the Spinning Wheel of 
Time, Labor and Love the finished robe 
Microcosm now unfolds.

Kindly Interest and Sincere Friendship

To the Class of TS[ineteen Twenty-seven 

DURING the past four years, each of you has been diligently preparing for her 
vocation, but has been giving very little thought, I am sure, to her avocation. 
Indeed, most of you, I suspect, have no avocations, no special forms of recrea- 
tion in which you are interested, so intensely interested, that you devote study or 
practice to making yourselves proficient above the average. 

If the time actually spent at work be subtracted from the day, a surprisingly large 
remainder is left. Most of us fail to get the greatest possible good out of these free 
hours, because we have no particular kind of pleasure for which we plan ahead. We 
more often turn to the trivial occupations which the moment offers and thus fritter 
away our spare time. Then, in retrospect, we have no outstanding memories, and we 
come to believe that we have had no free time whatever. 

Once we are provided with an avocation, however, every free moment can be filled 
with real pleasure in the practice of our hobby, or in the planning for it. Moreover, a 
high degree of proficiency in any particular field is in itself a source of satisfaction to 
even the most modest of us. 

So I beg of you, now that you are prepared to assume the serious duties of life, do 
not fail to give thought to making the most of the opportunities for enjoyment 
before you, for as Colonel Roosevelt has put it, "The joy of life and the duty of life 
are companions and complements to each other."

'Tis well to be bones! and true." 

This clever miss actually makes all of her own clothes and that is not 
all — she designs a great many of them, too. It seems as though this 
might be a case of "missing one's calling in life" for Alice is taking the 
Secretarial Course, but from all reports, she is as efficient in her chosen 
profession as she is in the field of dressmaking. Would that we were as

She is jolly, good-natured and brimming with kind-heartedness. Did

Corelli is doing research work on cakes. However, she is not only a good

"Of a mind many gifted." 

Evelyn is one of those dual personalities. Her instructors know her as

Her friends can tell an entirely different story. They know her as a young

Pauline, affectionately known as Peebe, is a lover of all things patri- 
cian and beautiful. Quaint bowls and lovely old lace are Peebe's chief 
passions but along with these she possesses a standard of efficiency which 
puts most of the rest of us to shame. One is inclined to feel resentment 
that the Prince School took Peebe away from us so much of the time.

"To know her is to love her 
And love but her forever, 
For nature made her what she is

Marion possesses an enviable personality which endears her to all of 
us who know her. Her splendid record as a nurse has established her 
unsurpassable reputation at the. Children's Hospital where she has been 
willing to do her duty and capable of doing it well. Her blushes never

Sally has always been ready with a smile which speaks for itself and

is very conscientious and deems nothing to be done if it is only half done.

Probably no other of all these pictured faces is as great a nature lover

We are glad Bobby came back this year to be a member of our class. 
From morning until night you can hear Hallie Roberta — alias Bobby —

"A moonlight traveler in Fancy's land." 

Where can one find a word to describe Vivian? She is indefinable'and 
elusive. If one were to make such a word, one would have to borrow a 
little of the meaning of Peter Pan and inquire of a Racaham illustration 
— ivory tinted with mysterious faces peering goblin-wise. From that 
you might think she is a witch — but no — she knows far too much of 
library science for that. You never would suspect it from her shy manner.

We are glad that Jeanette was unable to return to College last year

Marion is one of the few who says and does things with the utmost 
deliberation and ease. Nothing seems to worry her or to disturb her 
calm appearance. She came to us second year and maybe if she had come 
sooner, we would have gained some of her calmness.

"Syb" 

"Come, let us laugh ami be merry." 

Did you ever hear her laugh? Well, make it a point to. You'll feel 
like it yourself after hearing her infectious outburst. Her even disposi- 
tion has made her many friends. School may be hard but Sybil can al- 
ways carry herself through the day by means of her laugh.

Anna Stewart 

"Firm of purpose." 

Sav not the age of faithful chivalry is past. Conclusive proof is now 
being offered. Anna receives actual statistical count — 365 letters a year — 
which is equivalent to one every day and a special on Sunday. Dare any- 
one ask why she is a Household Ec-er?

Dorothy Stone 
"Dot" 

"Be mine a philosopher' s life in the quiet woodland ways" 

There are exceptions to every rule and Dot is one of them. Red hair 
may be the cause of tempers and rages on the part of many owners but 
Dot's red hair means sweetness, calm, conscientiousness, and oh! such a 
lot of brilliancy. Hereafter, we firmly believe in the red-heads!

"Else" 

"Grant her two or three hearers — a morsel of chalk." 

Pep, pep, pep, always rushing around, excited about something and 
getting a big kick out of life. Knowing Else makes one feel good and 
peppy; and underneath it all, the girl has sense.

Dot is another girl who is always cherishing a hobby! It has been

Beryl Sweetland 
"Bobs" 

"Sweet, grave aspect." 

It is a popular notion that blonde hair denotes fickleness; but there are 
exceptions to every rule, and Beryl is one. Ever since Junior Prom, a 
certain diamond has sparkled on her finger, which all goes to prove that 
Bob's Home Ec Course will be applied to home management for two.

"Peg" 

"Such joy ambition finds. 

Four years ago Peg was first known as the quiet little girl who was 
Dibby Sinclair's roommate and who made a blue dress all by herself for 
the first time. Then, Press Board discovered what a good reporter she 
made — after that Peg began to acquire a newspaper complex. She has 
the reputation of being able to ask more questions than any of us could 
think up in a year. Then, there is her absent-mindedness — and the cute 
way she says, "What do you want for a nickel?" We are sorry Peg had 
to get sick this year.

"Let her live to be a hundred — we need her on earth." 

Has anyone ever seen a busier girl than Chy? It is either studying, 
going out, or playing tennis! But she is never too busy to think of others 
and she is always willing to do for anyone. And did anyone ever see her 
when she was blue? No, never. She always has a happy smile on her 
face. Has anyone ever had a truer friend? We doubt it.

"It's what we think and do that matters." 

Conservative by nature, Betty has that much-to-be-desired quality of

subtle thrusts of humor which are wholly delightful. She is the uncon- 
scious possessor of an extremely charming individuality.

"The floiver of olden sanftities." 

By the unsuspecting multitude, Isabel might be considered a shy and

with such surprise and amazement that they remain helplessly fascinated .

It would be hard to rind such an all-round good sport as Olga. She is

liable to do. Just as a hint, though, she is well-versed on the latest 
method of getting thin!

"Long thoughts these." 

Ida is a small, determined sort of person who makes up her mind what 
she wants and gets it. Didn't she capture a license to drive a car all in

— you may be sure that some day it will be there.

How to say all that we should in this small space about a girl like 
"M. T." Without a doubt, she is one of the most popular girls in our

The words "Student Government" bring a number of things to our minds in the 
held of activities and also in the field of ideals. There are two things, especially, 
which we hope it teaches us — responsibility and co-operation. 

Many of us feel, when we first enter college, that Student Government is an organ- 
ization constructed with the sole object to make us obey rules. During our college 
years this narrow conception should change, and we should come to see that Student 
Government has far greater possibilities than those concerned with rules and regula- 
tions. It is concerned with all our interests in college, and we, in turn, in order to have 
the richest college years, should be actively interested in it and ready to assume its 
responsibilities. 

Responsibility is not always a burden. It is rather paradoxical. In assuming re- 
sponsibility, we often arouse our interest; and a keen interest in things which are 
worth while is one of the things which make our lives most valuable. Co-operation 
is a thing we must learn, too, in all our activities; Student Government is an excellent 
place to try it out! It is closely linked with responsibility. If we can gain a better 
insight, through Student Government, into these two elements of character we shall 
have learned a great deal! 

Student Government exists for a number of things. One of the most important is 
that it gives us a conception of government — self-government. It is something which 
should be of interest not only to the few who, for a short time, happen to be working 
in its executive capacity— but to every one. It is in this interest that its strength lies. 
What a splendid Student Government we would have if every student would co- 
operate and really interest herself in it ! We have not yet reached this idyllic state, but 
it is something towards which we are striving, and, we believe, making progress. 
Each step forward we make in looking at our Student Government problems with 
an increased sense of responsibility and co-operation is a step forward, not only for 
ourselves, but also for the college.

'Dormitory Committee 

Chairman Janet Decker 

Secretary Marion Fearney 

Dormitory Committee consists of the House Seniors and House Chairmen. These 
girls bring suggestions from the girls in their houses. These suggestions are discussed 
and any decision is taken to be approved by Student Government Council and from 
there it is brought to Conference Committee. The meetings of Dormitory Committee 
are held every other week. 

Under the Simmons Code which was adopted last year, this Committee has tried 
to keep the rules general. It has made many interpretations but has made no changes 
in the rules themselves. The students of Simmons have proved themselves worthy of 
supporting a set of lenient rules. The Simmons Code has proved satisfactory.

Conference Committee is the last of the three steps of our Student Government. 
Dormitory Committee and Student Government Council send their suggestions for 
solving the difficulties of the student body to Conference Committee. 

In this committee, composed of members of the faculty and students, these sugges- 
tions are ratified or amended. 

The Conference Committee is a very valuable member of the Student Government 
Organization, and one which it would be impossible to do without. We appreciate 
the assistance which the faculty members have so loyally and kindly given us, and 
we extend to them our sincere gratitude for the part they have taken in helping Stu-

Judicial Hoard 



Chairman Gertrude Bancroft '17 

Secretary Helene Burr '2.8 

The Judicial Board, as its name implies, is the judiciary branch of Student Govern- 
ment. It is the youngest institution at Simmons, this being its second year. 

The Board consists of nine members. The four class Presidents, a Sophomore and 
Junior Representative of Student Government Council (elected by Council), and the 
Chairman, a Senior elected by the student body, are regular members. The President 
and Vice-President of Student Government are ex-officio members. 

All cases, whether academic or dormitory, are brought up before the Board. The 
offender always appears before the Board at the time her case is brought up, and is 
given a chance to defend herself. Judicial Board passes its recommendation to the 
Conference Committee (for dormitory cases), or to the Faculty Disciplinary Com- 
mittee for academic cases.

President Beatrice A. Magnuson 

Secretary-Treasurer Mary A. Funk 

The Academy, the honorary society of Simmons, was founded in 1918 for the pur- 
pose of fostering an interest in academic and cultural studies. 

This year, the work of the Academy has been in the direction of a new interpreta- 
tion of the constitution so that the requirements for admission might conform to 
changed conditions in college rules. The purpose also has been to increase the annual 
membership in Academy without lowering the standards in any way. 

The Academy has a definite place in a school such as Simmons and with sufficient 
backing can enlarge its activity in acquiring the cultural "character of perfection, not 
a having and a resting, but a growing and a becoming."

The Simmons Y. W. C. A. organization is not a club or society of a few, it belongs 
to each and every one of the students. It does not consist of only four inanimate 
letters of the alphabet, but it is a living vital organism, attempting to expand by fill- 
ing the needs of the students. 

It has brought to the dormitories such interesting people as Dr. Calkins, Con- 
stance Ridley, Mrs. Ives, and many others, to talk with the girls on problems which 
thev are facing or about which they are wondering. Representatives have been sent to 
conferences at Milwaukee, Poland Springs and Maqua to better fit the girls to carry on 
the work of the Cabinet and to help prepare them to meet their own questions 
squarely. 

House parties, hikes, sports, are planned for all those caring to participate while 
the annual baseball game furnishes not only a sport but loads of fun. Christmas and 
Easter vespers are also a part of the work of Y. W. in its attempt to meet the needs of 
the students. Y. W. needs the suggestions of every one of the students. Offer them, 
and the girls in the organization will be glad to use them.

Ellen Tfychards Club 



President Gertrude Magee 

Secretary-Treasurer Bertha Polley 

The Ellen Richards Club, founded in 192.0, is the student Science Club of Simmons. 
Its membership includes Juniors and Seniors in the General Science School, and 
Seniors pursuing a thesis course in Biology, Chemistry or Physics. The faculty of the 
science departments are included as honorary members. 

Because of the requirements for admission, its membership is limited to a com- 
paratively small number. Nevertheless, Ellen Richards Club has acquired a tradition 
of fine comradeship among its members, and a college-wide reputation for the good 
times which it manages. 

The aim of the club is to promote interest in science among the students and to 
foster the spirit of good-fellowship among its members. We are especially proud of 
our initiation at which the incoming members, each fall, go through the tortures 
necessary to prove their right to membership. The picnic in the fall and the birthday 
party in the spring are always affairs to be remembered.

The Unitarian Club has completed another interesting year with its North Hall

we were so glad could be with us was Samuel McChord Crothers, famous Unitarian 
minister and familiar essayist. At these open monthly meetings we have always wel- 
comed Miss Goodrich of the faculty and a number of girls from other denominations. 

The social meetings have brought out Liberal students who come from such distant 
places as California and Porto Rico, while the business sessions have kept us in close 
touch with the Boston activities of the national Young People's Religious Union. 

The club wishes to bring the Unitarian students and other Religious Liberals 
together in closer friendly relations and endeavors to show by its undertakings that 
"The Spirit of Youth in the Life of the Church is the Hope of the World."

Christian Science Society meetings have been held every Thursday afternoon. These 
meetings, testimonial meetings in form, have been very inspiring to all members. 
Meetings are open to all interested in Christian Science. The annual lecture was given 
in January by a member of the Board of Lectureship of The First Church of Christ, 
Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The purpose of the Society is to bring about a greater realization of friendship and 
co-operation among the Christian Scientists of the College; to welcome entering 
Christian Scientists; to increase friendship and love for all members of the College; 
and to offer to those so desiring, an opportunity to learn the truth of Christian Science.

The Simmons Newman Club has been very successful. The meetings are held on the 
third Thursday of each month. Some of these meetings are open to the college and 
there is a noted speaker, or some interesting current subject is discussed. There are also 
many social activities given. by the Newman Club, such as dances, teas, and bridges.

The Review has always been the meeting ground for undergraduates and the alum- 
nae of Simmons, and in the new policy adopted this year of adding to the board an 
equal number of graduate officials, it is more than ever representative. The com- 
pounded board has proved its worth as a venture and added prestige to the magazine, 
its two important accomplishments being the initiation of a new cover design and the 
promotion of another successful poetry contest— so vitalizing to our rather practical 
and prosaic trend. 

In increasing numbers, the graduates are sending in their contributions and, with 
featured articles by the Faculty, the "review" of Simmons is complete.

After a brief period of hesitation at the beginning of the year, the News got a whole 
jump ahead of itself by adding a new double page to its already four-page newsyness. 

The aim of the staff throughout the year has been to cut and select the news pub- 
lished in such manner and matter as would appeal most widely to the interest of the 
students. Primarily the News is the students' printed organ and for that reason is alive 
to both the faults and virtues of its patrons, glad to give praise and recognition when 
each is due and just as eager to condemn when condemnation is just and needed. The 
members of the staff have worked hard and tirelessly in the interest of their paper and 
they now pass it on to next year's class with a little sigh of regret at parting and a 
very great hope that it may continue to improve and grow with the growth and im- 
provement of the college.

^Microcosm 



At last, here it is, our very own Microcosm! Our directions for making are simple, 
if carefully followed: 

Take a number of Photographs and mix with Write-ups; add some Names and 
Addresses; place in first section of book. Take some Snapshots and Lists of Names; 
mix well with Artistic Drawings and place in the center of the book. Then, take some 
Statistics, some Nonsense, and some Sense; sprinkle well with Snapshots and Witti- 
cisms and place in the back of the book. These three sections should be thoroughly 
mixed with Hard Work and Weary Nights; an Ad section must be added just before 
sending to the printer for a month. Result? Microcosm! 

And we of the Microcosm Board here wish to thank all those who have helped us 
this year. Especially are we indebted to Dr. Gay, our faculty advisor, for his patience 
in guiding us and for his worthy contributions, both verbal and written.

The Press Board is dedicated to the purpose of securing for Simmons the best type of 
publicity. The students representing the various newspapers write their stories with 
the view of releasing for publication faculty and alumnae news as well as interesting 
reports of the varied activities of the undergraduate body. They attempt to keep out 
the frivolous, inconsequential material that adds nothing to the prestige of thecollege. 

The Press Board is a new organization at Simmons and its membership is compara- 
tively small, but its opportunities for growth are increasing each year. 

The Boston papers are well represented but the smaller out-of-town papers rarely 
receive the Simmons news which would be of so much interest to the public. It is for 
these papers that the Press Board needs student reporters. These smaller papers pay 
very little for copy, but they can give to Simmons a publicity that is most desirable. 

Simmons differs from the colleges of liberal arts in many ways, and it is because of 
its differences that it offers a wealth of material for interesting articles for the Press 
Board. We want the public to know that Simmons is a real college that gives an edu- 
cation plus a vocation, and not a cooking school or a commercial college. 

The field of opportunities is great and alluring and we hope that this year will be 
but a phase in a long and useful career of service to our college.

Student Forum 



Next vear's Forum needs to devote one of its first meetings to instruction 
on how to ask questions, then the name — Forum — will be less misleading. 
Aside, however, from a conspicuous lack of self-expression the journal of 
the year shows a very fine record of attendance and interest. The temper 
seems to be against economics and problematic subjects and for the arts 
of life — the humanities. 

Here and there were some talks particularly memorable — Madame 
Leginska, all in black, with her chalk-white face set and intense. Her 
words held our attention, yes, but her nervous hands in gesture and at the 
piano, struck at our emotions. John Clair Minot's talk on books, clever, 
contagiously humorous, drew the most discussion from the floor. Out at 
the Freshmen dormitories, the laughter over Dr. Lawrence's song "The 
Rat-Catcher's Daughter" has not yet died. From the Sophomore dormi- 
tories, Dr. Mark's story of the early days of Simmons has been retold until 
it has become a sort of saga, the hero's part vastly embellished. Miss 
Babcock and her poems of blue seas and the dark cypress, set us all 
dreaming of Italy. Madame Tomanoff — beautifully poised, her long fingers 
weaving in and out — made us catch our breath over the simple tragic 
storv of the Russians.

science person in business, Miss S. Agnes Donham on "Why the Business Girl Needs 
a Budget," Miss Thelma Tubbs, head dietitian at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital 
and Miss Murphy, nutrition worker with the Community Health Association, on 
their respective fields in dietetics, and Miss Ada Brewster, from the Nassau County 
Committee on Tuberculosis and Public Health, on her phase of nutrition work. 

Throughout the year the committees have worked verv hard selling food at Hall 
Table and in the dormitories to earn a sum of money sufficient to send a junior dele- 
gate to the 192.7 convention at Asheville, North Carolina.

coach Barrie's "Admirable Crichton." This was a difficult play to attempt but such 
things as scenery and properties had no obstacles when Miss Noyes' guiding hand 
was felt. 

During the second term, Mrs. Guy Currier was so kind as to give the Dramatics 
Association a tea, and the girls were privileged to meet Miss May Ediss of the Copley 
theatre and Mr. Elmer Hall of the Repertory. 

The three competitive plays which were held on February 18 and 19 were most suc- 
cessful and although the Freshmen won the prize, the Juniors and Sophomores came 
so very close that the decision caused much deliberation. The Sophomore play was so 
good that it was repeated for the New England Commercial Teachers Association at 
Hotel Statler, April 15.

This year the membership of the Glee Club was increased to one hundred. Before 
the first meeting of the club as an entity, Mr. Closkey, the new director, tried out the 
voices of the old members and reassigned them to new parts, if necessary. Soon after 
college opened tryouts were held for those who wished to enter the club for the first 
time. 

In December the club gave its annual joint concert with the Tech Club in the Refec- 
tory. The concert was unusually successful and it greatly encouraged those who were 
endeavoring to raise the standard of the club. A new venture was tried this year — a 
concert in Jordan Hall, a proposition which required careful planning before its final 
execution. 

The Glee Club has an excellent future and it is felt that, in this year's work, it has 
made great strides in that direction.

The existence of the Mandolin Club this season was shorter than usual, due to the 
early date of the joint concert with Tech. Until that date, the members of the club 
assembled every Thursday, and sometimes more often during the week, to rehearse 
for the concert under the very able direction of Mr. Rice. By that time, a certain 
degree of proficiency was gained in the harmony of the combined instruments, which 
included besides the mandolins, some violins, a 'cello and saxophone. 

It is to be hoped that interest in this organization will not entirely die away and 
that the interested members will accomplish more in the coming year.

The policy of "splendid isolation" which Simmons pursues in athletics requires no 
justification. Nevertheless, for the benefit of those whose logical minds demand a 
raison d'etre for all things, great and small, we feel that a brief statement will not be 
amiss. For the good of the college, it seems rather better to mangle one's friends than 
create enemies by assault upon strangers, and furthermore it requires a great deal less 
time. Be that as it may, athletics at Simmons occupies an important niche in hall of 
extra-curricula activities, and is steadily increasing in popularity. 

A physical manifestation of the ever-growing interest evinced in athletics by the 
student body is the presence of badges of achievement. 

No new sports have been added to the list during the past twelve months as the 
general opinion at present seems to be that those now available, namely, field hockey, 
basket-ball, tennis, riding, baseball, fencing, archery, and track offer attractions 
diversified enough to engage the interests of all, even in such a cosmopolitan group as 
the student bodv of Simmons.

This year we are offering two courses in Life Saving to those who love to swim. The 
first one is the Senior Life Saving Test. This consists of learning how to approach a 
drowning person, how to break his death grip and lastly, how to resuscitate him. This 
is the test we have always given here since the Corps was started. 

The Examiner's Test is more advanced. We take Senior Life Savers and teach them 
the best methods in case they do not exactly remember them, then we teach them to 
instruct others and give them practice in marking others. When they have passed this 
test, thev are qualified to judge any other pupils who may wish to take the test. These 
courses are given under Captain Jack Wallace at the Big Tree Pool, Cambridge.

Freshman Frolic 



"Freshman Frolic!" What pictures flash on the screen of our memory when these 
two words are spoken? What are the bits of costume that flutter in the breeze of 
reminiscence? Gigantic bows, fancy socks, worn-out dolls, romper suits, and childish 
faces ! 

True. But, oh, ye happy Seniors! just look at these snaps! Can you do so without 
having either hysterics or a serious complex? For instance, the treasure at the top of 
this page! Where, oh where, is the innocent simplicity of a little boy? Ye suit, ye 
stride, ye poise, ye hat, ye cigarette. How demure! 

And below! Did you ever see such a collection of long hair in your life! Childish? 
Ah, me, if we were childish then, pray what are we now? 

Thus it is. In four short years the wonders of evolution are revealed, and now that 
we are young, we find we once looked old. 

But in our hearts the spring of youth was bubbling high and by formal declaration 
we made our promise before the world to put awav childish things and become a 
woman.

Qhost Walk 




h&0^£> 



LAove perce With hekquvj?» 



"When we were Sophomores long ago," Ghost Walk was not the tea party it has 
degenerated to of late. It was a fierce old fight and many of us were actually afraid 
of what might happen to us that night, if we were to meet some Junior unawares. 
Maybe it was a little rough, but it was worth it! 

What mattered who was victorious! There were enough doughnuts and cider for all, 
and even some extra for the lucky Seniors who stuck their heads out of their doors 
when we made our triumphant march through South Hall.

Sophomore Luncheon 



It was long, long ago that 19x7 became a class and got its now historic ring. Out 
of the mist of the past rises a picture of the Refectory decked in green and white — 
our luncheon that was green from soup to ices— our Toastmistress, Betty— our class 
Mascot who growled at us from the speakers' table— our own Dr. Gay, with his 
story of Princess Sophomora and her dragon— not to mention our Dr. Mark and 
Miss Franc, now Mrs. Skirball, who vied with each other to amuse us— and then 
ourselves, for the first time, a class!

Sophomore zMay T>ay 




Will we ever forget arising in the chilly morning to walk through the Fenway 
gathering branches of trees and bits of shrubbery for "Midsummer Night's Dream?" 

Will we ever forget how we tripped the light fantastic on the glorified campus? 

Will we ever forget how attractive were the ladies-in-waiting and the king and 
queen as they stood shivering in their royal shoes? 

Will we ever forget how, when the sun rose higher, we settled down to steady eat- 
ing of strawberry shortcake? 

No, never! 

Never? 

Well, hardly ever!

The Weddings of '2.7 




1915-^7 

Strains of sweetest music 

The wedding march begins, 
The bride is more a-quiver 

Than the strings on the violins. 

The groom is pretty nervous, 

He bites his trembling lips; 
You see, he isn't very sure, 

That his tuxedo fits. 

The ceremony over, 

Straight through the crowd they dive; 
Miss Nineteen-twenty-seven 

On the arm of Twenty-five. 



i 9 i 7 -x 9 

Showers for the bride-to-be, 

Dinners for the groom, 
Made our second wedding 

Come and go too soon. 

All dressed up in paper, 

Lavender and gold, 
The bridesmaids listened shyly 

To "the sweetest story told." 

The minister was gloomy 

Though the match was struck in Heaven. 
Was not Miss Nineteen twenty-nine 

Just made for Twenty-seven?

Our ^Marblehead Ticnic 




When we were happy Juniors 

One day in early May, 
We heard our Freshmen call us 

"Come, let's go out and play." 

So early in the morning 

We pulled us out of bed 
And in our oldest raiment 

Set out for Marblehead. 

Arriving at the beach — 

The sand, the rocks, the sea, 

Made us feel so giddy 
We danced about in glee. 

The brave pulled off their stockings 
To wade the chilly deep, 

While others scaled the rocks 
To test their dainty feet.

Then our "Freshies" served us 

Such a splendid lunch 
That "dogs" and tonic vanished 

Before that hungry bunch. 

Games were next in order, 
So balls flew wild and high 

'Til fire engines whistled 
And flames licked toward the sky. 

Then every auto started 

To dash into the fray, 
And we watched the fire vanish 

'Til near the close of day, 

And as we journeyed homeward, 

A weary, happy crowd, 
We thanked our little sisters, 

And cried, "Of you we're proud!"

Senior Housewarming 

That Seniors can look dignified is seldom denied; that Seniors can look stunning 
has been frequently observed; but that Seniors can look idiotic, wretched, under- 
nourished, poverty stricken and dumb has been conclusively proved. Ye skeptical 
undergraduates and astounded faculty had but to take one swift glance into North 
Hall basement— or was it South— one fine October night in the year 192.6, to realize 
that, tragic and unbelievable as this observation is, the facts were well grounded — 
very well grounded indeed. 

All over the floor was squatted a most extraordinary collection of orphans, washer- 
women, blind men, corner bums, poor old women, and shivering maidens. And when 
food was presented to them! Never were such atrocious manners ever before exhibited. 
With one huge bite, whole pumpkin pies slipped down the throats of this famished 
mob, while ten and twenty of the starving creatures would stand in rows and actually 
stuff their mouths with dry white crackers. Would that Emilv Post had not been there! 




Toward the end of the evening, one of the energetic orphans decided to stage a 
production and proceeded to select numerous individuals from the audience to assist 
in the capacity of furniture for the room. The interpretations were prefect! But just 
as the furniture was holding its delicate positions with the utmost grace, some one 
shouted: "Now the name of this play is 'The Gathering of the Nuts.' " Curtain! 

At exactly two minutes before ten the startled Cinders and Cinderellas looked 
down at their garments with fear and dismay. The hour approached when rags and 
hilarity must be discarded and woolen dignity assumed. The clock struck ten! A 
scandalous group of Seniors dashed up the basement steps with their tattered garments 
streaming after them. 

And a ragged slipper was found in the basement by the Janitor next morning.

Ye Xmas Thinner 

Loud was the trumpet call 

And the ladies— laced and diamonded, 

Lords— plumed and pompous 

Swept through the hall! 

Welcome all! 

Jest was King 

And crowned the boar's head, 

Filled the cider mugs to overflowing, 

Joked and sang and roared with laughter 

Till the shadows in the rafters 

Fled and flickered. 

In the tumult came the voices of the minstrels 
Like the silver chant of bells; 
Night was long before the candles guttered out, 
Gone the last song, gone the last shout.

I see a ball room flooded with light and filled with gleaming tables — 

I see the guests as they enter the hall in tuxs and ermine and sables; 

A whirl of color, a flash of smiles, a rustle of silk and satin, 

The ladies are seated and dinner is served with its menu in French and Latin. 

The orchestra's playing with lightning vim and the dancers are whirling in dreams, 
Streamers are flung from the balcony high 'mid flashes of gorgeous beams; 
Now all of a sudden the hall is dark and singing is heard above, 
The Seniors in all their splendid black have brought us their words of love. 

The clock has struck the fatal hour— a minute's hush prevails, 

The charm of echoes fills the air— to the taxies even' one— hail! 

In golden patterns the throng pours out, out in the summer night, 

With the hush of a spell that will echo forever in the memory of deep delight.

Student (government Tartjj 192-6 

Will we hold it close as the days go by 

And the years fly on? 
Will we see it all with a gentler eye 

In memory's dawn? 

Will we see the girls that we used to be 

There in the shade? 
Will we sing again to the Senior class 

On the colonnade? 

It was in the soft hush of late afternoon that the Class of 192.6 assembled for the 
last time on the colonnade before the whole student body and many members of the 
faculty. Voices were more or less stilled, but excitement and feeling ran high. It 
was 192.6's last Student Government party; they would not be there another year; 
there were worlds before them yet to be conquered, and though they were not anxious, 
they were willing to be off— but first they had work to do. 

A brightly burning torch of student activities had been handed to them the year 
before. They had held it high and kept it burning bright, while around it they had 
built a wealth of ambitions and dreams. It was time, now, to hand the beacon over 
to another class, and we of 1917 were the ones to take it from their hands. From one 
year's senior class to another the honor and good name of the college was passed for 
safe keeping. 

The gay festivity of the party which followed added such live joy and royal com- 
radeship to the solemnity of the hour that 

Every heart like a singing lark 
Rose toward the sky.

To the Steps 

Under the droop of wisteria 

Where purple petals fall like rain, 

The old songs will be sung 
Again and again. 

Through the leaves of the pear tree 

A thin moon will peer, 
When the steps tell their story 

Year by year. 

And swaying lanterns 

In the last adieu 
Will blossom and fade 

Two by two.

Host on Week- End 

Ji zM-idwinter-TSligbt' sDream 

Introductory Note: It should be explained that the following is a fragment of an 

expressionist drama, exhibiting the psychic states of Miss Simmons Senior, after a 

day of classwork, attendance at a Boston Symphony Concert, an hour of radio at a 

friend's house, a dance at the Kenmore, and a late supper of lobster patties and ice 

cream. 

Time: Night — to be exact, 1.30 a.m. 

Place: The stage of Symphony Hall. 

The stage is set in a yellow, green, pink, purple, and orange nightmare, by 

Bakst. 

Note: The goloshes worn in the first scene are furnished by Raymond's. 

* * * 

A Chorus of Cultured Ladies dance in decorously. They are plainly dressed, bare- 
headed, wearing goloshes, and carrying terra cotta colored Symphony programs. 
Chorus op Cultured Ladies: 

We've sat on the steps outside since a quarter past ten, — 
Two hundred devoted ladies, and one or two men. 
The men got up and left an hour or two ago; 
But we? Did we? No, indeed! No! No! 
Our devotion to Music is such 
That we cannot suffer too much : 
We rush 

Through the slush 
And the snow. 
First Semi-Chorus: For the three immortal B's — 

Beethoven, Brahms, and Bach — 
We sacrifice our ease; 
Second Semi-Chorus: And wear goloshes 

And mackintoshes 
And sit on the steps and sneeze. 
Grand Chorus: We rush 

Through the slush, 
Skwush, skwush, 
And sit on the steps and freeze. 
Impertinent Boy: And gush? 

Grand Chorus: HUSH! 

(There is a vague expectant flutter among the Chorus, with much excited whispering. They 
all gaze off towards the right under their bands. — Enter, gracefully, conductor, gracefully 
arranging his coat-tails .) 

Conductor (bowing gracefully): Stations WBZ, WBZA, and WJZ, of Boston, Spring- 
field, Providence, and New York, through the courtesy of Mr. William Watson 
Wampole, retailer of high-grade paints and varnishes, whose slogan is, "You might 
as well know the worst." 

(The Orchestra has suddenly risen through the floor and is now tuning its instruments.) 
Orchestra: Zoom, zoom, zoom. 

Squeak, eek, eek, 

222 



1927 MICROCHAOS 

Boom, boom, boom, 
Weke, tweak, shriek! 
(The Conductor gracefully raps his Band; but, before they can begin, Miss Simmons 
Senior enters, late. She is very pretty, but is much bewildered at finding herself on the slage.) 
Chorus of Cultured Ladies: She is late! Think of it! Late! 
Miss Simmons Senior: I'm not so very late. 

Chorus of C. L.: Any late is too late at the Boston Symphonee. 
Miss S. S.: Well, now that I'm here, begin. 
Chorus of C. L.: She doesn't care a pin! 
Hardened and Philistine! 
To make BACH wait! 
Conductor: And nobody thinks of me! And nobody thinks of me!* 
Chorus of C. L.: We've read our programs through and through 
And know just what to say and do 
When anybody asks us what we think of So-and-So. 
Conductor (tearing his hair): Three times I've signaled to begin, 

And every time you've butted in: 
This time is final. One! Two! Go! 
{The Orchestra bursts into the slrains of Moonlight on the Ganges. After a moment of 
petrified horror, the Chorus of Cultured Ladies all swoon. The Conductor, having torn out 
all of his hair, turns into an Adding Machine. Enter, Hamlet and the First Grave Digger.) 
Hamlet (after gazing through his monocle at the proslrate forms of the Ladies) : There are 
more things in heaven and earth — no, I've said that before. Hum! Can you think of 
an appropriate sentiment for a melancholy Prince under the present circumstances? 
First Grave Digger: A bed of clay 
For to be made 

For these here dames were meet. 
Hamlet: Very good. (After examining the Adding Machine) And what have we here? 
Miss Simmons Senior: Please, sir ... I mean, Your Honor ... I mean, Your Majesty, 

that's an adding machine. 
Hamlet: Hum. And how do you know? 

Miss. S. S.: Because I've been punching one all the morning in Office Organization. 
Adding Machine: I've endured enough. Punch me if you dare. 
MissS. S.: Pooh! 

Hamlet: But . . . er . . . why should one . . er . . punch it? 
Miss S. S.: Why, you see, you punch those buttons and it writes down numbers, and 

then you turn that crank and it adds them up correctly. 
Hamlet: How exceedingly odd. Just fancy! Why, do you know, I think I'll have to 
take it home to Ophelia. She never can seem to keep the household budget straight. 
Miss S. S. : Ophelia! B-b-b-but I thought she was d-d-d-dead! 
Adding Machine: I hope she is and I wish you were. 

Hamlet: Why, no. You see, they gave her first aid after she fell into the brook and she 
recovered. But I'd rather not talk about that. Laertes and I somewhat forgot our- 
selves, because we thought . . . Well . . . (To First Grave Digger) Sirrah! Take 
that home to my wife with my compliments. 
Adding Machine: Now, look here! I won't go, you know! I've had a hard day and 

I . . and I . . . 
Hamlet: Buzz, buzz. 

*An obvious echo of the wail of Xanthius, in the Frags, tead that day in English 151.

(The First Grave Digger carries it off, singing/) 

But age, with his stealing steps, 

Hath clawed you in his clutch, 
And shipped you intil the land, 
As if you had never been such. 
Hamlet: How absolute the knave is . . . but I've said that before. (To Miss Simmons 

Senior) You seem to be very well informed. Where did you hear of me? 
Miss S. S.: Why, I was reading about you only this morning in College. 
Hamlet: Indeed, why, er . . . Sh-h. Hark! Methinks I hear my wife's voice. 
Ophelia (off-stage): Hamlet! Hamlet! 
Hamlet (calling): Yes, darling. 

(Enter Ophelia, aged forty, stout, florid, and competent .) ■ 
Ophelia: Will you never get any sense? Why under the sun did you send that com- 
plicated thing home to me? 
Hamlet: Sweets to the sweet, dearest. 
Ophelia: Stuff! (Stiffly) And who is this, pray? 
Hamlet: Why . . . er . . . this is . . . er . . . 

(The Chorus of Cultured Ladies, ivbo have been lying all this while in rows, suddenly sit 
up. They gradually turn into a Chorus of Simmons Students.) 
Hamlet: My word! Really quite charming, don't you know. 
Ophelia: You come home with me this instant. Dinner is ready. 

(She hurries him off.) 
Hamlet (going): Frailty, thy name is . . . Hang it all, I've said that before! 

(Exeunt.) 
Chorus of Simmons Students (singing) : 

In autumn, when the leaves are red, 

We study history in bed; 

In winter, when the leaves are gone, 

We read psychology till dawn; 

In spring, when little leaves grow big, 

On Gov. and Soc. we bone and dig; 

BUT— 
In the good old summer-time, 
In the good old summer-time . . . 
(They suddenly break off.) 
Miss Simmons Senior: What do we do in the summer-time? 
First Simmons Student: I know what I'll be doing. I'll be working. 
Chorus (singing): One will be running a lunch room, 
And one will be taking dictation, 
And one will be squinting at test tubes, 
And one be computing a ration, 
And one will be weighing a baby, 
And one will be teaching a class, 
And one will be married, it may be, 
And one will miss being, alas! 
But one thing we all can be sure of, 
That's coming to you and to me. 
We all will be working at something, 
Whatever that something may be. 
First Simmons Student: Hush! What is that strange noise?

Second Simmons Student: Sounds like the elevator at 300 The Fenway. 
Third Simmons Student: It's over there!

All: Oh! oh! oh! 

(They all rush off, screaming, leaving Miss Simmons Senior Banding paralysed, flaring at 
the Orchestra, who have all turned a bright red. Gradually they sprout great claws and long 
feelers and goggle eyes, until they present the spectacle of a school of great Lobsters, all waving 
their claws and glaring at her.) 
Miss Simmons Senior: Oh, please, s-s-sirs, I . . . I . . . promise I'll n-n-never eat an-n- 

nother 1-1-lobst . . . 
Lobsters (in chorus): SILENCE!!!! 
(They sing) : 

Down, down, down, down in the depths of the sea, 
In the cool green slime, 
We grew to our prime 
As hearty and handsome as lobsters can be. 

We trimmed our whiskers and turned out our toes, 

With hardly a wish 

But to pinch the fish 
And crack the oysters, and dance, and doze. 

But we all fell victim to pots and nets, 
And only a few 
Could say adieu 
To their lobsterines and their lobsterettes. 
(They all weep, waving their claivs dolefully in unison?) 
First Lobster: But, brothers, we can now have our R-R-Revenge! She ate my cousin 

last night, and I shall eat her this morning. 
All: To be sure. . . . That's the idea! . . . Up and at her! 

(They all rise from their seats and advance sloivly upon her. She stands transfixed for a 
moment, then rushes to and fro.) 
Miss Simmons Senior: Help! Help! Help! 

(The Stage rocks like a ship in a slorm, the Lobsters all fall in a heap, the roof flies off of 
Symphony Hall, and the ivalls totter as if to fall inivards. Suddenly Miss Simmons Senior 
finds herself in bed, fighting desperately with her pillow, which for a moment looks like a 
Lobster. Then she begins to fall, — a hundred, a thousand, miles, to end with a bone-shattering 
bump. She has fallen out of bed and awakes to discover that she is lying on the floor with mat- 
tress, pillows, and bed clothes piled on top of her.) 
Miss Simmons Senior: O, my back! . . . O, my head! . . . O, my stomeeek! O, O, O! 

(She crawls from under, turns on a light, and looks at herself in the mirror.) 
Miss Simmons Senior: What a night! 

I'm a fright! 

Oh, what a pain. 
Horrible dream! 
Lobster and cream — 
Never again!

The Way Through the T)ump 

They shut the way through the dump 

About three months ago; 

Shovels and derricks have pierced it's heart 

And now you would never know 

There was once a way through the dump 

Before they planted the steel; 

It is under the framework of capital 

And the hardy laborer's heel. 

Yet, if you go by the dump 

Of a summer evening late 

When the night air takes the curl from your hair, 

Which the gods have decreed to be straight, 

You will hear the sound of innumerable feet 

And the swish of skirts in the dew; 

The sound of a voice and a tinkling laugh 

Will break through the solitude; 

And yet, there is no way through the dump, 
It was shut some months ago — 
The moneyed lords have covered it up 
And we don't stand a show!

MICROCHAOS 



Ifs Up to You 



HAVE you ever admired the hopeful, exultant stream of lovely Simmons Seniors 
as thev file through the Fenway, past Notre Dame, up to the swinging doors of 
the onlv college at 300 The Fenway? And have you noticed how strangely different 
thev all are? Some have sharp noses with pointed faces, angular arms and long feet. 
Others are short and fat with deliciously round eyes and ears and little hands that 
look like balls of butter. That rather stout girl over there with the gloriously red hair 
has a model disposition. Tell me, do you suppose she 
has a bone in her body? And look! The gaudy student 
coming across the field! What a remarkably large 
mouth she has! And her feet! Did you see them? No 
wonder she makes progress. 

Oh, grief! How the college has failed! To think that 
this is the contribution Simmons makes the world 
this June, 19x7. What matters that their brains have 
been stuffed with knowledge! Now that they leave 
the college forever, all that is left behind. You'll find 




QP^^IMi 



ffi 



it in the second-hand book store. The world gets the 
skeletons devastated by the ravages of the esteemed 
stuffing process. Hollow cheeks were once puffed out 
with Government definitions — especially prominent 
every Tuesday morning. Raspberry elbows were out- 
rageously rounded with creme of Sociology applied in daily doses with general reviews 
every fortnight. While shiny noses with the skin well rubbed off the end indicate the 
daily marathon race with ye half-length J, N hook, second position from Alabama 
who "won't take but a few minutes of your time" and then proceeds to dissertate 
voluptuously on the Value of Seed Distribution for an uncanny length of time — much 
to the disaster of the nose in arrears. Honest replicas of long skinny test tubes appear 
on the horizon. Poor girl, she means well, but what can the world do with her? What 
can the world do with any of these creatures? Beauty is necessary! The world is 
screaming for it! Everywhere a gallant war is being waged against ugliness, in one's 
self, in the home, in the office, but the efforts are all in vain. Every conceivable means 
has been tried to the limit, but little improvement results. Beauty parlors have failed! 
Tens and thousands of them are daily filled with anxious souls who endure outrageous 
abuses in the name of Beauty. Yet, they come out looking exactly the same as they 
went in, if not a little worse. The universe totters on the edge of ghastly ruination. 
The spirit of loveliness has eloped, leaving the world at the mercy of her ugly sister. 
Women weep. Men groan. Little children shriek with fright. A wild cry goes up! 
Must this go on? Is there no remedy? Can not science with its great power discover a 
real source of beauty — a protector against the horrible ugly sister? Is there not some 
one who will bring back the spirit of loveliness? 

Hark ! In the distance is heard the faint sound of an answer ! Over the hills , down the 
valleys, and through the trees rushes the omen of a new day in beauty. You would be 
fat? You crave a Roman nose? You just adore web feet and puffy necks? All of these 
and more can be yours! Every type of beauty is at the disposal of those who care! 
Whether it be teeth like a typewriter, or the complexion of the sand, nothing, noth- 
ing is impossible now! You have but to read the magic words of the most profound 
revelation ever brought to the light of day, until, intoxicated and dazzled by its 



231 



THE MICROCOSM 



1927 



glowing charm, you rush from all beauty parlors and sumptuous meals to perform the 
newly discovered, simple duties which will make you a perfect dream of harmony. 

Fat and thin, short and tall — 
Read these words for one and all, 
Heed the voice of Beauty, wise, 
And learn the way to change your size! 

Let it be understood, in the first place, that the belief that food is an essential con- 
tributor to the beauty and size of a human being is but a ludicrous delusion. "An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away" or "diet and grow thin" are but absurd phrases 
imposed on a gullible public by people who crave to express themselves in writing. 
Food, like sleep, is nothing but an adequate attempt to waste time and interfere with 
life. People lose sight of this fact and indulge heavily, too heavily! Calories and vita- 
mines are but idiotic hallucinations. The real determining factors of bone structure, 
size of feet, shape of head (including the accessory features thereto attached) and the 
general plumpness of one's anatomy, are outside of the body — never inside. These 
factors are the apparent, existing, ever visible multitudinous Curves and Points which 
may be seen all about us — resultant from the living together of a number of electrons 
and atoms, who, thereby, form something (remarkable creatures) such as a knife, a 
wall, a building, a piece of glass, a spire, ah! even a spire! 

Do you fully appreciate the uncanny effect that is produced on you, when, by means 
of your two optics (the chin will never do) you gaze upon something wholesomely 
round or unquestionably thin? Look for a moment at ye mushroom squatting so 
majestically on top of Simmons College — especially the tall 
spire as it pierces the spiritual way to Heaven. Do you not 
feel your nerves tighten, your muscles contract, your eyes 
narrow and the tip end of your nose become just a little 
pointed? Can't you sense how this sleek, skinny structure is 
just shaving your whole anatomy? Why, if you have a pug 
nose you desire to get rid of, just gaze on the topmost top of 
this little mushroom for three hours every day for four 
years. At the end of that time your nose will be so pointed 
that the end of a pin, if placed on the same side of the face 
with the nose, will actually look blunt! And this process of 
refining will gradually extend to all parts of your being. 
Dainty ears with five or six fine corners will start to sprout; 
a rounding mouth will sharpen to a picture of pen points 
and a broad forehead will narrow to an harmonious slit. 
Now, if you are a particularly "pointed" creature this 
refining process will lead to extremely unfortunate 
results. How hideous and sad a spectacle would any 
Simmons student be, if, because of a lack of careful 
use of this newly discovered sight-shaving process, 
she became a mass of hideous points — extending out 
in every direction! As she walked down the street on 
her spindley legs, with ankle bones that protruded like stirrups, the tips of her feet 
would leave sharp holes in the pavement, her shapeless arms would whack like steel 
poles against her microscopic body and not even a Scott detective could determine at 
which of the points her Gothic face began, continued or ended. But, now, on the 
other hand, if a student should tend toward obesity, an abundance of curves, a rolling 




232 



1927 MICROCHAOS 

wealth of universality, a pleasing plumpness or even an imagined luxury of flesh, she 
would indeed do well to indulge in systematic doses of Gothic vision. Gaze long on 
the top of ye mushroom. Look not at ye pillars of any description. Avoid roundness; 
seek ye points. Follow this course of action for several months. Sure cure to follow! 
Just produce ye hand mirror at frequent intervals and examine carefully the face to 
ascertain whether or not doses are sufficient or too sufficient. 

If the loss of regularity is too vivid and deep gouges of irregularity set in, shift your 
gaze for a week or ten days or a month, if necessary, to ye round objects. How easy it 
all is! Both prescriptions are accessible to all and easily exchangeable. One has but to 
dart from the college over into the Fenway and from the Fenway back to the college 
again. What more soothing, quieting, lazy influence is there than the reverent, ac- 
curate symmetry of the perfect bridges which hang so gracefully over Muddy River? 
Just gaze on their unvaried form, refined finish and accurate cutting! Nothing savage, 
disturbed, obstinate, or rude in their sacred expression! No phantoms of admission of 
lost power, imperfection, wild imagination or fragmentary discipline fly around 
these flawless inventions. The most pointed girl by daily communion with this quiet 
architecture would become what "every artist admires." 

Again, too, there are the fluffy little pigeons that strut around the Fenway! Charm- 
ing exhibitions of perfect plumpness! Do you feel their influence? While their share is 
small in proportion to the more mammoth creatures, think not that you are un- 
affected. As yet, no particular set of curves or points has been found to be lacking in 
the power of changing human appearance. Owing, of course, to the fact that this dis- 
covery is yet in its youth, no extensive analyses have yet been made of every object in 
the world to discover the varying degrees of influence inherent in each. In due time, it 
is hoped that all persons interested in this new and easy way of Beauty-Perfection will 
be supplied with a complete table giving the relative shaving and expanding powers 
of every object of common sight. (A nominal charge of $50.00 will, of course, be 
necessary. Absurdly cheap! You see, the objects are furnished to you free. You can 
look at them freely! You have but to consult the table — the rest is up to you.) Now, 
undoubtedly, some people will attempt to use this beauty method without the aid of 
this book. But, as has already been suggested, there are serious dangers in doing this. 
For instance, if you look too long upon one of those old-fashioned riding chariots, 
hauled by a now almost extinct animal, that sometimes try to pass the stretch in 
front of Simmons College, you may, if not informed as to its plucking capacity, lose 
all your powers of motivation. Or take that splendid array of early recruits that soothe 
the nervous professor in the late afternoon with extraordinary bits of harmony! How 
is their gallant formation influencing your disposition and hair texture? Beware! 

Do you realize that every time you look at Notre Dame a change takes place, not 
only in the structure of your anatomy, but also in the depths of your character? The 
pointed arches, vaulted roofs and flying buttresses are creating within you an instinct 
to be rude and wild. Some of the Gothic cathedrals exhibit ugly goblins, formless 
monsters and stern statues. Can any human being look at these creatures without a 
smoky flame of wild extravagance, destructive freedom and barbaric invention surg- 
ing through her blood? Never! 

Why is it that people look hard and less beautiful in winter than in summer? Why 
do man's thoughts turn to love in the spring time? Is it not because the fairer sex are by 
far more fair in the spring? And is this not due to the influence of ye little round buds 
that burst out on the dead, dry stems of every tree; and the soft, colorful crocuses that 
brave the sharpness of the first spring winds? Ah — the influence of the fragrant flowers 
is superb! Drink deeply of their mellow sweetness if you would be dainty, feminine, 

233 



THE MICROCOSM

mild and tender; but if you would be rough, masculine, vivacious and temperamental, 
go where the air is always bitter cold and the only plant life is black and fierce. For 
there, in such places, radiates the majestic cruelty of an unsoftened personality. 
Now, it is indeed very lucky that the principles of this Beauty Theory have been 

discovered just at this time, especially 
for the sake of the Secretarial Department 
of Simmons College — for a careful study 
of the typewriter discloses that the 
time is now at hand when the influence 
of this machine will begin to manifest 
itself on all those who have been in 
contact with its stimulating being for 
some length of time. And its influence is 
most unbeautiful! Very soon our type- 
writing instructors will smile at us 
with teeth neatly lettered, with the 
alphabet, a s d f ; 1 k j covering some of 
the upper front teeth while z x c v / . , m 
mark the lower ones. Across the fore- 
head a neat scale appears, while the nose 
becomes an excellent tabular stop. Ears 
indicate a rubber roller. At frequent in- 
tervals, the tinkle of a bell may be 
heard from the back of the head, after 
every three inches of paper. And erasing is absolutely forbidden! Beauty deliver us 
from an instructor like this! 

If, for any reason, you doubt the veracity of this absolutely common-sense beauti- 
fying (also horrifying) theory herein expounded, consider for a moment the indis- 
putable influence of the dirt, the dust of the ground, which most of us spend the 
greater part of our life admiring. For who gives a look at the sky, or even the sky 
line? If a piece of string should be tied on to the end of every one's nose — and then 
extended in the main direction of that nose, 98^2% of the strings would touch the 
ground; 1% would extend straight ahead, and only }4% would point in the direction 
of the dome of the earth. What of it? What does that prove? Why, it is simple! Little 
wonder we all, sooner or later, turn into dust! Do you suppose any one can stare at 
crushed stone for some twelve hours every day, seven days a week, four weeks a 
month, twelve months a year and some sixty or seventy years a life, and not be subject 
to the deteriorating influence of crushed stone! Never! Lucky for us that its power is 
comparatively weak, or we would not stick together so long as we do! Is this not 
absolute and conclusive proof that life, beauty and character is but the reflection of 
the world around us? Gaze not at the dust of the earth and your life will be long! 
Admire its crumbling surface and death awaits you. It's up to you! 

The sanity of this theory is charmingly incontestable. No other sources of beauty 
ever have or ever will be discovered to equal it. Once, a prominent Boston newspaper, 
which is supposed to be sensible, published the announcement that if we should take 
little babies when they are first born — soft and pliable — we could, by careful manipu- 
lation, shape their little faces, crooked elbows and disjointed toes to suit the whims of 
all the relatives and thus the problem of beauty would be early and easily dispensed 
with. Why, you could take one of those little noses and twist it all day and all night 
and a few hours the next day, but you would accomplish nothing. That nose is going 



234 



19 2 7 MICROCHAQS 

to look like the combination of atoms and electrons that nose is constantly near. And 
the disposition that grows into the being that owns that nose will have the char- 
acteristics of that same combination of atoms and electrons. It's as plain as the nose 
itself! You want your child to be savage, rude, generous, obstinate, changeable, and 
imaginative 3 Just place on the top of the bassinet a tiny reproduction of the adorable 
Simmons College mushroom, or an idiotic toy goblin, or a keg of nails, that the 
sensitive eyes of the young creature may early and leisurely imbibe their sharpening 
and shaving powers. You want her to be civilized, selfish, orderly, calm, lazy, perfect 
and round? Let her gaze upon a crystal ball, a bouquet of violets or a gorgeously 
fluffy loaf of milk-white bread. Your problem is thus solved, and the child is spared all 
pain incident to the cracking of limbs and stretching of muscles and skin. Audacious 
cruel method that it is! 

Just as soon as the truth of this absolute and profound discovery becomes universal 
and the mighty advertisers get hold of these facts, the art gallery of every street car 
will be devoid of "Cod Liver Oil for Beauty" — "A Skin You Love to Touch" — "Have 
You a Little Fairy in Your Home?" and "There's a Reason." Instead, gorgeous repro- 
ductions of striking buildings will decorate the walls with the announcement that 
"A five-week gaze on this redundant gem will make any woman a wood-like nymph" 
— or "Soft sculpture — jasper pillars, ceaseless sunshine and cloudless sky! Creatures of 
ungainlv shape and rigid limb will become flowers of terraced gardens by drinking in 
the curves of this benign structure ! ' ' — ' ' You would win him over? Obtain our marvel- 
ous steel derricks — study their form. Thereafter, the world is at your feet!" 

What a Cosmetic Revolution is awaiting us just around the corner! The year 19Z7 
will go down in history as the breaking point of practically every prosperous busi- 
ness. All kinds of powders, shampoos, get-fat pills, try-em doses, nose frames, arch 
supporters, rubber leggins and face lifters are already being thrown into the bottom of 
the ocean with the manufacturers splashing after. 

Be not old-fashioned! Decide on your type! Choose your atmosphere in accordance! 
Start treatments at once! You see: It is up to you!

Of the Three Students 
in 1937 

There met three women Reunion Day 
And the first was clad in silk array, 
The second wore a cape of seal, 
But the third was rags from head to heel; 
"Lo, now is the year and the day come round 
When we must tell what we have found." 
The first said, "I have found a man 
Who gives me everything that he can." 
The second said, "I have found a job 
Which pays a wage a bank would rob." 
But the third said, "I have found a love 
For the best there is on earth and above."
